    I have been working at ABB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Better pay than other locals, steady 4 day work week

    Cons

    taking of some benefits, not stocking of tools needed on daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    be more employee friendly, younger middle management is only looking at numbers, not looking at real world situations, ie can`t snap fingers and get good parts.

    Pros

    Multiple locations to move to; upward mobility; normally pay more than competitors.

    Cons

    Very difficult to work between ABB divisions. Each one is worried about their own Business Unit financials, rather than the whole ABB.

    I have been working at ABB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is OK, lots of overtime. Great overall company

    Cons

    The US Solar Service depart is so poorly managed. Much confusion and blame shifting. The example being set by management is very bad.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at Service management, poor communication. Unless we can make management feel it was their idea, they will never implement our ideas. Feels like grade school management.
